52 m high Valdice tower not only dominates Wallenstein Square, but basically the whole Jičín. It is also a nice viewpoint of the entire town and its surroundings. So it is certainly worthwhile to ascend all 156 steps and enjoy the view from the observation gallery.  

Wallenstein Square

The most beautiful view from Valdice tower is to the west of the picturesque Wallenstein Square surrounded by municipal houses with arcades. Every Saturday morning reigns here bustle and hustle, because traditional markets are held here.

View not only of Prachovské skály

Looking northwest through the houses of the old town, you can see a low but interesting ridge containing not only the views of Brad and Přivýšina, but especially the famous Prachovské rocks.

View of Čeřovka and Zebín

In the northeast direction is visible the wooded hill Čeřovka and the prettiest hill far and wide – Zebín.

View of linden alley

Interesting is also the view of almost two kilometers long linden alley leading to the loggia and on to Valdice famous for its prison. On the horizon you can see the renowned outlook of Giant Mountains and ruined castle at the same time – Kumburk.

View of Zizkov Square

To the east, directly below the gate, is Žižkovo náměstí and the city's most important street – Husova. On the horizon you can see another well-known view of the Giant Mountains – Zvičina.

View of the Elbe

The view to the south is the least interesting. The landscape in the Cidlina basin, a tributary of the Elbe, is only slightly rugged.

View of Veliš

In the southwest is also visible the tower of Church of Our Lady of Sale towering above Jičín cemetery. The horizon is dominated by the best outlook far and wide – Veliš hill, an ideal place for a short trip.

Especially for children is an interesting exhibition of beautiful wooden puppets just below the gallery of the tower.
